1. Reasonable Cost
One of the reasons why couples get married in winters is the “Wedding Cost”. It’s a fact that winter’s weddings are cheaper as compared to the weddings that happen in hot summers. Because of the winter season, you can not have an open wedding ceremony which actually helps in cutting the extra costs.
In an open wedding, you need to keep other things ready, say a tent, a big umbrella, fans etc. Some of these are an alternative to bad weather conditions and others for beating hot sun rays. Installation of these alternatives may charge you an extra amount which you can save if planning a winter wedding.

Winter weddings are considered as darker nights weddings. Yes, you heard it right.
